The thousands of women and girls being used by the Islamic State terror group as sex slaves attempt to make themselves look less beautiful by covering their faces in dirt, an escaped Yazidi boy has said, but they still get beaten and raped by the terrorists.
"The girls were covering their faces with dirt, trying to make themselves less beautiful. But if they were caught doing that they were beaten. They were all beaten and taken away. ISIS beat us too," 15-year-old Ahmed Amin Koro told Fox News after escaping an IS training camp and fleeing to northern Iraq.
He said both male and female prisoners are treated terribly inside IS camps. Children are woken before sunrise each morning and forced to recite Islamic prayers; they are fed only with scraps, and washed with contaminated water. more >>

American Pastor Saeed Abedini has revealed that his close friend, Maryam (Nasim) Naghash Zargaran, who was held in Iranian prison for her Christian faith, is in extreme pain and "one step from death" after being temporarily released to receive medical treatment.
"Bail was put up for Nasim and she is now home. I got to talk to her. She got time from prison but there is still a high possibility they will have to take her back after a week or so. I think they allowed this to shut down the news. I saw her, and she looks like she is just one step from death," Abedini wrote in a Facebook update on Monday.
"She went to the hospital to get treatment after her temporary release and they recognized her and wouldn't treat her. Her sister in law is a doctor and she is now in her house to help her start eating," he added. more >>
